“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stayed here for a week with my daughter while she participated in the Youth American Grand Prix and a second time during a summer visit to NYC. Clean rooms and very friendly, helpful staff. Great onsite restaurant and breakfast.

This was my second stay - just as good as before - room very good if a bit small this time; but this is NYC so no complaints- service just right - and the best location - last time it was business at NYU, this time it was just leisure and where better than the Village with its laid back vibe, leafy square, and the W 4th st subway just around the corner to take you everywhere else

Stayed for 3 nights in February 2014.
I picked this hotel because of the convenient location. I usually stayed in mid-town area but the hotel rate in this period was so high over there.
This boutique hotel was quite nice and friendly. My room was at the back and has the view of the next building and the sky.
Room was of medium size and the bathroom was adequate, I didn't quite like the narrow zig zag corridor that leads to the room.
Decent free breakfast was served in the morning.

Very good small hotel, right in the middle of things around Greenwich Village but also well placed for much of Manhattan with the subway. We stayed visiting family at the NYU nearby so it was right on their door step.
Washington Square is an endless source of amusement, there is so much going on, music, performers of all types and of course the chess tables.
Helpful staff and free continental brekky, or you can pay for the full works in their restaurant. Nice rooms but you dont spend a lot of time there. A nice touch was low level lights under the washbasin, this gives a soft light where you need it if you nip out for a wee in the night.

Second stay at this wonderful, charming art deco hotel and i can't wait to visit again. The rooms may be on the small side but have everything you could possibly want and hey some say small is beautiful. The staff are absolutely great and nothing is too much trouble for them, one receptionist even remembered me from 2 years ago and with all the thousands of people coming through their doors every day I'd say that was quite something. Ronnie the concierge/doorman is something else and in my opinion "the main man" always ready to go that extra mile for you and never without a smile and a way of making you feel extra special. A true credit to the hotel. Go try the WSH for yourself you will not be disappointed

Location is probably one of the best in NYC. Area is plenty of character, very jazz and lively, with plenty of very good restaurants. Hotel is clean, rooms are not big but they are well equipped, staff is helpful and ready to give you all useful information you may need and breakfast is decent.

Room Tip: Try a room at higher floors and with some view on Washington square.
